In the newest film from Cinetopia vet BRETT HALEY (whose The Hero opened Cinetopia 2017), single dad Frank (NICK OFFERMAN) prepares to send hardworking daughter Sam (KIERSEY CLEMONS) off to UCLA pre-med. He also reluctantly has to accept that his own record-store business is failing. Hoping to stay connected with his daughter through their shared love of music, he urges her to turn their weekly “jam sesh” into an actual band. Channeling Sam’s resistance into a band name, they unexpectedly find We’re Not a Band’s first song turning into a minor Spotify hit, and they use their songwriting efforts to work through their feelings about the life changes each of them faces. Also stars TED DANSON, SASHA LANE, BLYTHE DANNER, and TONI COLLETTE. -Sundance Film Festival, 2018
